Property Express - Popular Waikato equestrian venue for sale

March 2021

A well-established, popular Waikato equestrian venue is for sale.

Little Valley Farm at Ohaupo, near Hamilton, comprises 23.63 hectares of undulating land, three separate dwellings and comprehensive equestrian facilities. It is offered to the market by Scott Borland of PGG Wrightson Real Estate, Cambridge.

“A carefully developed and comprehensive property of this standard is only rarely available. Equestrian properties invariably reflect the character of their owners. Little Valley Farm is testament to high standards, care and attention to detail.

“In its current ownership for approximately 25 years, the property was established in its own right after subdivision from a dairy farm, with a long term plan to make it a success for horses and horse people, which has been achieved admirably.

“Major equestrian facilities include a 66 x 24 metre indoor arena, a 75 x 45 metre outdoor jumping arena, and an extensive cross-country course,” says Scott.

Little Valley Farm’s other equestrian infrastructure includes:

  • a building containing 10 covered yards with an aisle;
  • an outdoor double wash bay;
  • separate tack room;
  • undercover truck park;
  • a building containing five boxes, a workshop and wash bay;
  • a new lockable shed approximately 12 x 4 metres;
  • a lockable three bay building;
  • a set of six-railed covered yards with separate wash bay area;
  • a metalled area for trucks and floats.

A bore provides the property’s water, while rainwater is also collected for tank storage.

Located 22 kilometres south of Hamilton, 15 kilometres north of Te Awamutu and 22 kilometres west of Cambridge, Scott Borland says Little Valley Farm is an ideal opportunity for a serious equestrian.

“For anyone with an interest in keeping horses, at scale, developing a property of this scope and standard is a huge undertaking that for most would take many years of effort. While a new owner may want to change a few details, all the major work has been done here to create a premier, and extremely well-regarded venue.

“In addition, although the infrastructure has been designed for equestrian purposes, it could easily be adapted or developed for other uses, or to diversify income streams,” he says.

Little Valley Farm is for sale by Deadline Private Treaty, with offers invited before 19 March.
